My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 117
We Went Out To Sell The Herbs
“Mr. Takumi. Leo. I did my best, and now I’ll be able to go to town tomorrow!”
“That’s nice, Tilura.”
“Yes, Tilura studied hard today.”
When we arrived at the dining hall, Tilura was overjoyed as she explained this to us.
As she had finished in time, she had been given permission to accompany us tomorrow.
And so Leo and I praised Tilura.
Ms. Claire was also looking at her with a pleased expression.
“Ah, Mr. Takumi. Here is your payment.”
“Yes, thank you.”
As I sat at the table, Sebastian came to me before the food arrived, and he handed me a leather bag.
I looked inside, and confirmed that it was the same amount that had been written on the order form.
“Thank you, Mr. Takumi. Now we can start selling the herbs in Ractos tomorrow.”
Said Ms. Claire. And then the food was brought in and we ate.
Once everyone had finished eating, I approached Sebastian.
“Sebastian. About the items I purchased during our last visit to the town. How much was it in all?”
“Mr. Takumi, you really don’t have to worry about that, you know?”
Said Sebastian, but I still wasn’t comfortable with the idea that they had paid for everything that I had.
When buying those things, I had said that I was just borrowing, and so I had to pay it back properly.
Even though I knew it was just their kindness.
“But Mr. Takumi, it was really such a small amount?”
“No. I had made those purchases with the intent of returning them. And so it won’t feel right until I do…”
“Well, that’s very decent of you…”
But was it?
It seemed like the most normal thing. Borrowed money should be returned…
Well, if I knew one thing about Ms. Claire, it was that she didn’t think much about such things.
“And it’s thanks to you that I now have a means of earning an income. You must allow me to start paying you back.”
“…If you insist.”
“Indeed. As the profits for this house are expected to be very great once we start selling the herbs, the amount you borrowed is really not significant…”
Giving me the money had meant nothing to them, but I had been very grateful nonetheless.
After all, had it not been for that shopping trip, I would be forced to continue wearing Sebastian’s clothes. And I would have also lacked many things during the forest search.
“In that case…the amount is…”
Sebastian whispered it to me quietly.
I suppose you were not supposed to talk about such things in a loud voice.
“I see… Yes…”
And so I paid him from the leather bag that I had just received.
I was glad that it was an amount that I had on me.
Of course, I still had some money left in my room, if it wasn’t enough.
That being said, tailored clothes sure were expensive…
Now that I had an idea of the currency of this world, I knew just how expensive it actually was.
It would be considered a great luxury to have a tailored suit made like this in Japan… I would have to take very good care of it.
“Well, good night then.”
“Good night, Mr. Takumi.”
“Tilura. You better go to sleep, all right? Good night.”
After returning the money and drinking tea, I decided to retire early for tomorrow.
And so there would be no sword swinging tonight.
Though, Tilura seemed so excited about going out tomorrow, that I wasn’t sure she would be able to fall asleep.
In any case, I said good night to everyone and then went to my room.
“Well, I’m going to take a bath.”
I said to Leo, and then left the room.
As Leo still hated baths, she curled in a corner of the room with obvious disinterest.
Now that I could understand Leo much better, perhaps I could find out why she felt that way.
If we could find the reason, then maybe we could do something about it.
“Now that I think about it, I still haven’t asked if Sherry hates baths as well…”
It was with such thoughts that I headed to the bathing room.
After washing up and soaking in the hot water, I got out and ate some sleeping herbs, and then jumped into bed before my body cooled.
“We’re going to the town tomorrow. You better behave, Leo.”
I said to Leo from my bed. She barked back as if to say, ‘I know that!’ And then I fell asleep.
The next morning, after breakfast, I finished preparations to leave, and then went with Leo to the entrance hall.
As this was the first day that the herbs would be sold in Ractos, we had eaten breakfast a little earlier than usual.
This was because we needed to deliver the herbs to the store that would be selling them.
“Ms. Claire. Sorry to keep you waiting.”
“Not at all. Tilura isn’t here yet.”
Ms. Claire had already been waiting at the entrance.
But Tilura wasn’t here yet…was she still getting ready?
As I wondered about this, I heard loud footsteps coming down the staircase that connected the second floor to the entrance hall.
“Sorry to keep you waiting!”
It was Tilura.
And Sherry was being held in her arms.
“Tilura. There is still some time, so stop running like that.”
“But I did expect you to be here sooner. What happened?”
“I almost forgot to bring this with me!”
Tilura said as she pointed to the sword on her waist.
…Ah. While I doubted we would face any danger. Perhaps it wasn’t a bad idea.
Besides, I had brought my own.
“I see that everyone is here. Let us depart then.”
“I can’t wait!”
Sebastian was carrying a bag that was likely filled with the herbs. And with that, we all stepped out of the mansion.
“Have a good day!”
Said the servants as we left.
…I was used to being sent off by them now.
“Lady Claire, Mr. Takumi. We will be escorting you today.”
Outside, the mounted guards bowed to me and Ms. Claire.
It was Johanna and Nicholas, who had accompanied us to the forest.
Well, thank you again.
